I raced a kid with a mid to late nineties Talon TSi (5-Speed) that had a full exhaust and a homemade intake.
He beat me off the line by about 1/2 a car 'cause of the AWD, but by 90-100, his front-end was at my tail-lights. It was definitely a great race, but had he really put the AWD to use on the launch, it would've been a lot closer.
Those 4G63'* can really make some really sick numbers; They are not to be underestimated, whether they are in a pudgy eclipse/talon or not. Might wanna think twice about racing one if you see a FMI or a gutted interior...
